Market sentiment analysis:

  • Market sentiment has improved Tuesday after the recent losses for stocks and other assets seen as risky.
  • However, it is too early to say that the panic is over and that demand for safe havens like gold will ease off.

Market sentiment has improved Tuesday after the recent sharp losses for risky assets such as stocks. However, traders need to be wary of a further selloff, sending more money into safe havens such as gold, US Treasuries and currencies such as the Swiss Franc and the Japanese Yen.
